In an interview posted on the video, Terry Garrett explains how he manages to overcome the many difficulties presented in the adventure, taking full advantage of clues created by the sound effects of Oddworld's  department of soundscape .

“Through Abe’s sounds, I was able to figure out how to navigate the world,”
